Very heavy continental QRM forced us to QSY to 3.691 where conditions and reports were OK. It was good to hear from Bill after some time and hopefully he will be a regular again. Another enjoyable net covering Rotary and festive activities. 73s to Brian and other listeners.

From Bob G3SZF
Bob had listened to the 20m nets but poor propagation on Sunday and Tuesday 1 Jan meant copy was only possible on the SDR
Note also that the nets scheduled over the holiday period are as follows:

Sunday 7th Jan - Yes net
Tuesday 9th Jan - Yes net
Sunday 14th Jan - no net (Bill away )
Tuesday 16th Jan - no net (Bill away)
Sunday 21st Jan - Yes net

Happy New Year and 73s, Phil VK2MCB
